TISHOMINGO, Okla. (KTEN) — On March 11th, Tishomingo Public School Superintendent Bobby Waitman announced his resignation as Superintendent of Schools. Now, as the school prepares to move into this new  high school building, they'll have a new superintendent to go along with it.

Brandon Moreland has been a part of the Tishomingo Public School system for over two decades, wearing multiple hats at all levels of education.

"Well I started out here 23 years ago as a teacher and a coach.” Moreland said. “5 years ago, I moved to the elementary as principal, this year I moved over here as the high school principal."

Now, Moreland will be changing hats again, this time, as Superintendent of Schools. The TPS board of education made the decision late Tuesday night. According to board members, it was an easy decision.

"He was the best applicant that we received.” Stated Tishomingo Board of Education President Scott Hutchings. “He's been a dedicated leader in our district. He had a lot of support within the community, expressing their support for him being our next superintendent of schools."

This decision comes two weeks after current Superintendent Bobby Waitman announced his resignation to become a full-time pastor. Waitman also believes that Moreland is the perfect fit.

"To lead, you have to be connected and you must have a tremendous amount of trust for people to follow your leadership.” Stated Waitman. “Mr. Moreland meets all of those expectations already in having been here and been a part of this."

Even though his first day is not until July 1st, Moreland already has high hopes for his new position.

"My biggest goal right now is to keep us moving forward.” He explained. “Tishomingo has a lot of things going in the right direction right now. I think everybody in this community is excited about Tishomingo, so I really want to keep that going right now."
